A Risky Flip

Tarek and Christina spot a listing that seems too good to be true, and as is often the case, the house doesn't exactly match the potential it had in the listing. But even with a major surprise in the details about the house, Tarek and Christina still see an opportunity for profit and embark on a fast flip with a new contractor. Will Tarek and Christina's gamble on this home and a new contractor pay off big profits or will this turn out to be nothing more than a risky flip?

Mid-Century Flip

Tarek and Christina get a lead on a home in Long Beach, California that sounds like the kind of project that has become their standard. But soon after walking the property and visiting a neighborhood comp, it becomes clear that this flip is anything but standard. The architecturally significant mid-century modern home will require Tarek and Christina to step out of their design and renovation comfort zones if they are to turn a profit on their investment. Can Tarek and Christina turn back time on their design aesthetic without inflating their budget or could a present-day flop be looming over this historic mid-century flip?

Ranch House of Ruin

Tarek and Christina come across a trust sale listing in Buena Park, California that looks very well-priced in comparison to recent sales in the area. After walking the home with their contractor and receiving a preliminary budget estimate, they're excited by the potential for profit. But as work begins and renovation costs rise on changing plans and hidden problems, their enticing profit margin appears to be on a downward spiral. Can Tarek and Christina rehabilitate this home into modern splendor or will mounting costs leave it to remain a ranch house of ruin?

No Risk, No Reward

Tarek and Christina get a lead on a trust sale property in Anaheim, California with an original layout and a dated design. It's in good shape and seems like a mostly cosmetic project with a lot of potential. But when their project manager comes back with a ballooning budget and a laundry list of contingencies, Tarek and Christina wonder if this home has more potential than pitfalls. Still, skilled flippers that they are, Tarek and Christina don't back down from a challenge and know that with no risk, comes no reward.

Foreclosure Shock

With no foreclosures to flip in Orange County, Tarek and Christina broaden their search to include Los Angeles County and find a house with a view that looks promising. The only problem is that the home is too far away for them to look at it before they go to the auction, so they'll have to bid on the property sight unseen. After placing the winning bid, they meet their contractor at the house for a design walkthrough. But listing photos aren't always what they appear, and the divide between initial perception and present reality has left Tarek and Christina in total foreclosure shock.

A Flip With The Enemy

Tarek and Christina are busier than ever with their growing business. As a result, when a fellow flipper contacts them about partnering on a house and he wants to split the time, money, and profit 50/50, they are very interested. But flipping is not a team sport; it's a competitive business and trade secrets are a closely guarded commodity. Can Tarek and Christina play both mentor and business partner? Will they all see eye to eye on budget and design, or could disagreement dissolve friendship and profit into a flip with the enemy?

Junk Yard Flip

Tarek and Christina spot an interesting property in Long Beach, California as they peruse the day's listings. It's a very small house with a massive structure in the backyard and because the house is currently tenant-occupied, Tarek and Christina will have to make their buying decision without the benefit of personally inspecting the property. The potential value of the back structure is too much to pass up and Tarek and Christina make a deal to buy the property; but when they arrive as the new owners, they are shocked by what they find. Can Tarek and Christina transform this trash heap into a treasure trove or will they be left wishing they never laid eyes on this junk yard flip?

Dirty, Dated and Undesired

Tarek and Christina spot a home listing online that's set for an auction that afternoon and based on neighborhood comps, the dirty and dated house looks like a bargain. By outward appearances, all it needs is an inexpensive cosmetic rehab. But after an unusual auction and a bevy of surprise issues, this dirty, dated and undesired home has quickly become more work than Tarek and Christina ever imagined.

The Money Pit

Tarek and Christina find a listing in Norwalk, California with such an attractive opportunity for profit based on comparable properties that they immediately make an offer on the property, sight unseen. With 48 hours to back out or complete the deal, they call in several contractors to walk the property and present a competitive bid. But as work on this weathered house begins, will Tarek and Christina be able to maintain their projected profit margin or will a bursting budget dig this flip into a money pit?

Of Wreck and Ruin

Tarek and Christina spot a home that's for sale by its owner in La Puente, California. It's in rough shape to say the least and because it's tenant occupied, they can't look inside. There's always a danger in purchasing a house sight unseen, but if they can get it for the right price, this home has the potential to pay off big time. Can Tarek and Christina right this sinking flip or could this home prove to be the stuff of wreck and ruin?

Tarek and Christina get a lead on a home in Riverside, California, with a massive backyard. It has great views and room to create a pool and outdoor living area fit for a five-star resort. The potential is there to make this the biggest backyard transformation they've ever done, but it won't come cheaply and they risk spending more than they can get back. Can Tarek and Christina create and reap the rewards of a resort-style backyard or could rising costs threaten to sink this backyard staycation dream home?

Flop House Flip

Tarek snoops a small four bedroom foreclosure with a pool in La Mirada as Christina heads to the public foreclosure auction where the house is on the docket. Tarek calls Christina, and from his evaluation of the house, Christina bids and wins the house for $210,000, a smokin' deal! However, as soon as Tarek and Christina open the door, it's clear that this dilapidated house needs a full rehab from tip to tail. It's a disgusting, smelly, confusing mess of rooms, with piles of trash, and graffiti everywhere. Tarek seriously underestimated the home's rehab costs, as initial bids from contractors come in at $50,000 and up. The cost alone for cleaning up this flop house is expensive, but when they begin to discover a bevy of unpermitted construction, Tarek and Christina are forced to demo unpermitted additions and spend money to decrease their square footage! With a skyrocketing budget and a rehab plan, which actually might be de-valuing the house, will this flop house Flip Or Flop?

Spanish Style Salvage

Tarek and Christiana spot an intriguing listing for a curbside auction for a foreclosed 1920's Spanish style house in Santa Ana, CA. This is a unique opportunity to actually walk through the house, before the bidding starts. Although it needs a complete overhaul it has some charming original architecture still in place that will add to its value. They decide to bid on the property and win the house for $208K, a good price considering comps in the area go up to $325K. Their contractor meets them at the house and finds more issues than Tarek and Christina originally spotted in their walk through. There is some structural damage to the foundation and roof leaks that could be massive projects and additional costs. Tarek and Christina worry these structural issues might blow their entire rehab budget. Will this Spanish style salvage be a profitable flip or a regrettable flop?

Big Lot Little Flip

With a low asking price compared to comparable properties, the house is already attracting interest from other investors.

With the house in various states of disrepair, Tarek and Christina are excited to have a clean slate for design but cautious about the problems that could be lurking in a homeowner's do-it-yourself renovation. Can Tarek and Christina bring this abandoned home out of renovation limbo or could their own rehab woes turn this project into an abandoned flip?

Abort Flip

Tarek and Christina get a lead on a promising deal in Long Beach, California. Since the property is currently tenant-occupied, they can't inspect inside the house and their decision to buy will have to be made based on what they can see from the car. It's a gamble to be sure, but with comparable properties selling for nearly $100,000 above this home's asking price, it's an educated risk. Will Tarek and Christina choose to accept this mission or could their good fortune flip into a flop?

Breaking Up

Tarek and Christina get a lead on a house in Torrance, California that is not only in rough shape, but also has known foundation issues. Right away it seems like this might be a bad buy; but Torrance is an exploding market and the land value alone could make this flip worth the risk. The house is going to need it all: good design, structural improvement, and careful renovation. It's a big project but it has the potential to be a big profit. Can Tarek and Christina transform this down and out home or could significant problems leave their budget and their profit margin on the verge of breaking up?
